Are you in a committed relationship where ADHD is a third partner?
Do you wish you could talk to other couples who are living with ADHD?
Do you wish you could talk to experts in adapting to a marriage that includes ADHD? If you answered yes to any of these questions then this is the group for you.
Typical symptoms of ADHD – distractibility, impulsiveness, disorganization – also impact other family members, especially if they live under the same roof.
Common complaints from non-ADHD partners are: feeling ignored, stressed out and frustrated.
The partner with ADHD often feels: overwhelmed, subordinate to their partner, and afraid to fail (again).
It doesn’t have to be that way. This group will focus on strategies to bring back or enhance the spontaneity, affection, and playfulness that first attracted you to each other.
ADDA believes happier marriages are an integral part to leading our best lives.
We are very fortunate to have an all star team to support this community.
Monica and Jonathan Hassall facilitate meetings on the 1st & 3rd Thursdays. Not only are the Hassalls ADHD Coaches and experts, but they are also married and living with ADHD in their own partnership.
Liz and Jennelle Kariotis-Rice facilitate meetings on the 2nd & 4th Thursdays. Not only are they mental health professionals, but they are also newlyweds navigating the ADHD in their partnership.
Melissa Reskof & Doug Snyder facilitate meetings on the 5th Thursdays. You may know Doug as a co-facilitator of ADDA’s Tuesday Accountability For You group. Melissa is an avid ADDA volunteer and Chair of the Outreach Committee. They were both diagnosed with ADHD in their 40’s.
Please join us Thursday evenings for community and support.
